(Persia Digest) -
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani hailed the nation’s unity in the face of US unilateral sanctions in the past months, saying Washington’s policy of “maximum pressure” against the country has failed in all aspects.
“In the past 14 months, the US has exerted its toughest sanctions against the Iranian nation, but it has failed in every way, from the social [plots] to the political and legal matters,” Rouhani told a large crowd of people on Sunday morning during his provincial tour to Bojnurd, North Khorasan province.
Whatever Washington hads tried against Iran, including “the harshest of sanctions”, has ended in failure.
Mehr News reports that the US clinching on to different anti-Iran measures in recent weeks, including the recent meetings of the United Nations and the International Atomic Energy Agency, to unite other countries against Iran show that the Americans have failed and their agenda to pressurize Iran doesn’t work any longer.

“This is another great victory for the nation and government of the Islamic Republic,” he added.
Last year, US President Donald Trump unilaterally pulled his country out of a 2015 multilateral nuclear deal with Iran and imposed what he called the “toughest ever” sanctions against Tehran, notably targeting its energy sector.
Those sanctions have hurt the Iranian economy, but all of the other parties to the Iran deal, which have stayed in the agreement, have been holding meetings with Tehran to discuss how they can make the pact properly work for the Iranian side as well.
Tehran has said it would potentially scrap the deal if its partners failed to do enough for Iran to achieve the economic benefits that it is promised under the agreement.
